Do you want to shell the VB6 executable? You can still use 'Shell', or
'System.Diagnostics.Process.Start' to do that.

You can not call a Form. You can call an executable. You may pass arguments
in the command line to the exe. In the vb.net Exe, you get the command line
using the Command function (Microsoft.VisualBasic.Interaction.Command) or
System.Environment.CommandLine or by adding "byval args() as string" to sub
main.

He's using vb6, he wants to try and use vb6 and then somehow use the .net
namespaces within vb6 code.

You can call out from unmanaged code object (VB6) to objects created in .Net
using COM Interop. See the .Net documentation for all the gory details.
There's also a lot posted on the web on how to do this.

This means, of course, that you wrap the .Net functionality in a dll created
in .Net; there's no way to call directly from VB6 into the .Net libraries.

Whoever I responded to then tried to tell him how to get command line args
from within dot net....which was pointless because hes inside VB6....hence
my comment.
